Game of the week:
Saturday April 1, University of Northern Carolina (UNC) Tar Heels fended off the Oregon Ducks to advance to the tournament championship in hopes of a different ending from last year’s buzzer beater by Villanova.  UNC’s Kennedy Meeks was the standout player of the game matching his career high with 25 points and 14 rebounds, eight of which came from the offensive glass.  With five seconds remaining in the second half, Meeks missed a pair of free throws leaving UNC to just a one-point lead over the Ducks, but he redeemed himself by grabbing the game’s decisive rebound off of teammates Joel Berry’s missed free throw attempt.  North Carolina will move on to face Gonzaga in the title game on Monday night.
